Henry VI Part 3

by: William Shakespeare

Act V, Scenes v-vii

Meanwhile, the Yorks have finally regained the throne, and there is no one left to fight them for it. The War of the Roses has always been a national version of a family conflict, since the Lancasters and Yorks were closely related. But now the struggle for the throne will get even more claustrophobic, as Richard sets against his own brothers in his quest for power.
